Do you like Far Cry 3? Do you also like over the top 80s action movies? If you answered yes to those questions then Blood Dragon is perfect for you! It has Far Cry 3 in the title but really has nothing to do with Far Cry 3 itself as you do not need the disc to play this. Unfortunately there is no Platinum trophy included, but there are 19 total trophies, 18 bronze and 1 silver.
Spoiler Alert: This is a standalone game and contains no spoilers regarding Far Cry 3. There are however just a few very minor spoilers in the guide that pertain to Blood Dragon.
Welcome to the party, plal – Bronze
– Finished Helicopter Entry
This is story related and cannot be missed
One Small Step – Bronze
– Finished First Garrison
This is story related and cannot be missed
Way to Go, Garri-Son – Bronze
– Finish all the Garrisons
The Garrisons in Blood Dragon are identical to the Outposts in Far Cry 3. There are 13 Garrisons to capture. If you are familiar on how to clear and capture Outposts, then you already know what to do in order to unlock this trophy. If not, here is a quick rundown on what to do and how to do it:
The main objective is to kill all of the soldiers patrolling the Garrison. It is recommended that you try to be as stealthy as possible because if you are spotted the soldiers will call for back up. You can disable the alarms in the Garrisons so that the enemies cannot call for back up. If the reinforcements arrive you will be in for a much tougher fight (although they can be fun). Before doing anything, tag as many enemies as you can see as it will make clearing them out easier as you will be able to see where they are all located. Crouching, using the bow, stealth melee kills, and throwing the dice to lure enemies are all effective ways to successfully kill the enemies stealthily.
Kill Them All – Bronze
– Finish all the Predator’s Path Quests
Predator Path Quests become available at Garrisons after you take control of them. Not every Garrison has this type of quest however. These missions have you hunting down rare animals with designated weapons. Accept and complete all of these missions to earn this trophy!
End Game – Silver
– Finished Final Showdown
This is story related and cannot be missed
Nice Like Jesus – Bronze
– Finish all the Hostage Situations
Hostage Situations become available at Garrisons after you take control of them. Not every Garrison has this type of quest however. In these missions you have to go to a designated area and free a hostage from a group of Omega soldiers. In order to free the hostages you have to kill all of the soldiers. These missions pretty much require stealth because if you are spotted the soldiers will kill the hostage.
The bow will be the best weapon to use for these missions. Make sure to throw dice to lure enemies away (exactly the same as using rocks in Far Cry 3). Take out the normal soldiers and snipers first and save the heavies for last. When there is only a heavy left you can attack them with the other weapons but don’t let them get away from you and kill the hostage.
Murder Nature – Bronze
– Kill all the Animal Types
There are 12 different animal types in total. You will actually kill most of these animals by completing the Predator Path Quests. Each animal location shows up on the map except for the snake. Snakes will attack you as you are walking through the jungle areas. After you get a snake off of your arm quickly kill it. The full list of all the animals are:
- Black/White Tiger
- Blood Dragon
- Cyber Panther
- Cyber Shark
- Devil Goat
- Mutant Buffalo
- Mutated Cassowary
- Mutated Turtle
- Neon Snake
- Robo Crocodile
- Robo Dog
To check what animals you have killed press Start and then select Data Console, go to Collectibles and then Animals.
Set Them Free – Bronze
– Destroy 5 Braincages
Braincages are basically mind control devices for the dragons. If a dragon has one on it will not chase after a thrown Cyber Heart or attack enemy soldiers. These are very easy to destroy just aim for the silver thing on the dragon’s head. It does not take much damage to destroy, you will play story and side missions that include braincaged dragons. You also do not need to kill the dragon for it to count.
Just the Tip – Bronze
– Kill a Dragon with the Bow
This trophy can be a little tricky but its not impossible. Damage a dragon with all of your other more powerful weapons until it has just a sliver of health left. Once you’ve done that, equip the bow and aim for the glowing pink area on the dragon’s chest and shoot it. You’ll know you got it when the dragon explodes.
Blood Dragon Down – Bronze
– Kill Your First Dragon
This trophy is basically unmissable as there are story missions that require you to kill a dragon. See the trophy Dragon Slayer for more details on killing dragons.
Dragon Slayer – Bronze
– Kill 25 Dragons
While playing through the side and story missions you will kill quite a few dragons. You can find the rest by free roaming around the island. Here are a few tips on killing the dragons:
- Stay crouched, they are unable to detect you while you are moving around in the crouched position.
- Have plenty of Cyber Hearts with you. The dragons will run after the Cyber Hearts that you throw.
- Aim for the glowing pink area on the dragons chest.
- C4, mines, and grenades inflict a lot of damage to them.
- The Kill Star is very effective for killing Blood Dagons. It is aquired during the last mission of the story.

– Reach Maximum Level and Become the Ultimate Badass
The maximum level is 30. When collecting all of these trophies you will gain XP for doing everything required to unlock them, so getting to level 30 should be fairly easy. If you are not at 30 by the time you have completed everything the best thing to do is kill blood dragons. That will net you plenty of XP and you will reach level 30 in no time!
Running man – Bronze
– After saving Darling, enter Combat Mode with a Dragon and Return to Stealth
After liberating the first Garrison via the main story you will immediately have the chance to obtain this trophy. When a Blood Dragon is calm it is green, when it is alerted and looking around it is yellow, when it has spotted you or an enemy it is red.
To earn this trophy attack a Blood Dragon to alert it, then throw a Cyber Heart so that the dragon will go after it. Once it goes after the heart find some cover and hide until it calms back down and returns to its normal state. Don’t forget to stay crouched the entire time or it will spot you.
